Can you tell me what arrangements are being made to consult public including voluntary sector about the proposed Safer Neighbourhood Boards and when will be Boards be up and running? Will MOPAC continue to fund the local police consultative groups until the new Boards are set up?

Answer for Safer Neighbourhood Boards

Answered By: 
The Mayor

As I have previously stated, my Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime is in open dialogue with key stakeholders. Following several discussions, the approach will be to develop an outline model that will form the basis of each Safer Neighbourhood Board and to work with borough stakeholders to develop a localised model in each borough. Plans are also underway for the Non-Executive Adviser for Neighbourhoods, Steve O'Connell, to host a stakeholder event later in the spring.
